The list of summer celeb babies just keeps growing longer by the day. People mag has just reported that funnyman Tracy Morgan and his fiancée, 26-year-old model Megan Wollover, are expecting a little bundle a few months from now.
“I am over the moon excited and just want a happy and healthy baby and a safe delivery for Megan,” the 30 Rock star and comedian told People.
The baby will be the first for the couple who announced their engagement in September 2011, six months after the proposal. Tracy, who’s 44, has three adult sons, Bobby, Tracy Jr., and Chris, with his ex-wife. Tracy divorced his high school sweetheart, Sabrina, on August 7, 2009, after 23 years of marriage.
The actor recently told Rolling Stone, in an interview on “The Last Days of 30 Rock,” that he hopes to have a baby girl the fourth time around. And after dealing with numerous health problems, like being diagnosed with diabetes in 1996 and undergoing a kidney transplant in December 2010, he’s just looking forward to enjoying a similar life. He told the mag:
“You know what happiness is? Happiness is a simple thing, man. It’s having something to look forward to.”
Here’s to the couple happily welcoming their child this summer!
Expectant twin mommy Tamera Mowry-Housley has just joined People.com as their newest celebrity blogger and in her very first post, Tamera is spilling on the intimate moment she found out she was pregnant and the mixed set of emotions she experienced when she thought about the reality of being a mother.
“It took a while before the fact that I was pregnant settled in,” she wrote on Monday. “Once it did, I kept reciting to myself, ‘I’m going to be a mom. I’m going to be a mom.’ I will never forget the feeling that swept over me. I found myself pacing my room with excitement and experiencing a sense of joy I have never felt before.
“Once I got myself together, I immediately thought about how I would I tell my husband. I always wanted to do it in a creative way. I decided to text Adam a photo of four positive pregnancy tests — yes, you read right, FOUR positive pregnancy tests — and added, ‘HAPPY EARLY FATHER’S DAY!’
“Thirty minutes later, I still hadn’t heard back from him. I began to worry — was he in shock? I couldn’t wait any longer, so I called him and asked if he had seen his texts. He replied, ‘No’ and I happily told him to look. His response? ‘COOOL!!!’
Tamera said she took a pregnancy test after missing her cycle by just two days, but she noted that in hindsight she had been feeling really tired and crampy, which explains why she was quick to take a pregnancy test. After the worry of why Adam hadn’t responded to her texts went away, Tamera said a different type of worry set in.
“Once I called my husband, an interesting thing happened. The excitement died down and quickly turned into worry. ‘Is this normal?’ I thought. ‘Is this what being a parent feels like?’ Now that I knew I was pregnant, I became overwhelmed with so many emotions. I never knew how excited and overwhelmed you can feel at the same time.
“There are so many things to do and facts to find out. But not only that, so much information thrown at you all at once! How do I sift through it? I immediately downloaded iPhone apps and called my doctor and my mom. Now that I’m pregnant, where do I begin?”
Five months into her pregnancy with a little boy, Tamera’s no doubt figured out where to start by now, but it’s cool seeing her sift through the emotions so many new mothers have the moment they find out they’re expecting. Amidst the worry and anticipation, she hasn’t lost her sense of humor though. In her post, she cracked a joke about how people react to her husband’s job as a Fox news correspondent, covering fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, wars, and every other natural disaster you can imagine.
“Many people are terrified when they find out I married a man who works in dangerous places,” she wrote. “I simply respond with a smile and reply, ‘He loves his job and I think he’s s[w]exy when doing it.’ Hence, I am now knocked up. LOL!”
She’s so cute.

I won’t keep you in suspense long. From the mouth of the mommy-to-be herself, who recently had a chat with In Touch about her pregnancy, she told the magazine:
“I’m having a baby boy! We’re so thrilled.”
This news makes the Mowry offspring tally 2-0 boys. On the 28th of this month, Tia’s son Cree will turn 1 years old and Tamera says it’s been helpful having her nephew around to help prepare her for her own son, particularly when it comes to changing diapers. She told the mag:
“I’ve been practicing on him!”
By fall, Tamera’s little blue bundle will be here. The expecting newlywed just hit the five-month mark of her pregnancy, but she’s already begun decorating the nursery. It should come as no surprise that the design will be fit for a little man.
“It’s going to have a sports theme,” she revealed.
In other Sister Sister twin news, the second season of Tia and Tamera’s reality show on the Style network also premiered Monday, June 11 so there may be some pre/early pregnancy behind-the-scenes goodness to catch there.
Did you see the first episode?

WARNING: This post could be a bit of a spoiler, but if you watch T.I. and Tiny then you likely already saw the preview of next week’s episode.
In a sneak peek clip for Monday’s show, we see Tiny telling her daughter and TIP that she’s pregnant. The oldest daughter doesn’t take the news too well, and T.I. doesn’t quite know how to react to the possibility of becoming a father of seven.
Since the preview aired, some reports have claimed that Tiny was seen at Phillips Plaza a couple of weeks ago and she appeared to be trying to hide the fact that she’s expecting. On the other hand, a conflicting “rock solid” source supposedly told MediaTakeOut that Tiny is not pregnant, but you never know what to believe there.
Hopefully if Tiny is expecting, all is well with the baby. In 2007, she and T.I.’s daughter was born stillborn due to complications during the pregnancy, and they’ve expressed that they’d like to have more children together. It’s also possible Tiny had a false reading on a home test or jumped the gun a bit so we’ll have to check out Monday’s show to get the full story. Either way, we wish them luck with their potentially expanding family!
